I woke up today morning with a need to define a word for myself.
2016 has been a transformational year for me. Every year is significant because there are 365 days of moments and memories packed . They may or may not be all good or bad but as long as you are healthy , capable & are taken care of, you find yourself hopeful about what’s in store.
Having said that , I am perhaps the most ungrateful person I know . Whatever I get , I always feel that it’s either after a lot of wait or effort. So instead of being thankful for all the good that happens , I end up feeling a mild sense of relief that it’s finally happened & quickly move on to the next task , next moment or chasing the next dream / want / desire.
Professionally , Personally and Blogging wise last year was quite eventful . There was definitely more good than things I’d like to get over. While my semi finished draft post would enlist all that made 2016 memorable & my VisionBoard would set the tone for 2017 but I still feel there needs to be one word for 2017.
Like a mantra I’ll say it out to myself every morning . Like a charm it would bring me what I seek . Like a shield it would define my attitude towards everything 2017 will bring along with it.
Embrace changes & see beyond them
Embrace Ideas & make the best of them.
Embrace the good , bad and the phase in between.
Embrace criticism & not let it sap my energy or passion .
Embrace happiness in what I have right now rather than chase some pot at the end of the rainbow.
Sometimes the questions you ask lead you to the answers you seek and as I spell out the intent the pieces fall in place.
I’ll be Embracing 2017 one day at a time Beginning Today.
Have you thought of the Word for 2017 for yourself?
